Mate as to be expected people will take this piss out of ya for the sick bit buy hey...mate if u wanna spice her looks up abit...depening on the condition of your rocker cover paint u can get the bay really cleaned up....clean all the hoses etc ad mayber armour all or what ever the plastics....have ya rocker cover re-sprayed, polished, chromed or even airbrushed maybe ...or get some air brush artwork done to the engine bay itself like under the bonnet, air box etc
